Ooty is one of the best hill stations in southern India, located in the state of Tamil Nadu. The hill station is famous for its pleasant weather, tea and coffee estates and less population, letting travellers connect with nature even more.
The economy of the hill station is based on tourism, agriculture and manufacturing of medicines. Located amidst the Nilgiri Hills, it is one of the top tourist destinations in India. The place is famous for its scenic beauty and quiet environment. Nilgiri Biosphere Reserve is tourist spot that is open to tourists in small parts, keeping in mind the fragile ecosystem the region has. Ooty Botanical garden is another tourist attraction in this region with thousands of indigenous and endangered species of plants, shrubs and herbs.
A ride in the Nilgiri railway system is a different experience as the trains still function on steam and the path going through the mountain valleys is a beautiful sight. Boating in Ooty Lake and visits to tribal huts are other things to do while visiting the hill station.
